A Seattle-area PC seller will offer free Windows 7 upgrades to customers who buy new Vista-powered machines starting next week, beating Microsoft Corp. and its biggest hardware partners to the punch by months.
I know of this company. Sometimes I see advertisements in the local technology publication. They're about 20 minutes away from where I live. It's nice they're doing this, especially because Windows 7 is coming out so soon -- even while we still have Vista in its relative infancy. Also, Isn't Windows 7 a 64-bit OS by default? I heard that once Windows 7 comes out, there won't be any further OS's that are 32 bit in the future.
Windows 7 will have both 32 and 64 bit versions, although I wish they would just cut the 32 bit one out all together since few computer built the last couple or more years can't handle 64 bit.
there will always be operating systems made that still support 32bit, the majority of which will be Linux but im sure Apple will be the same. If its true that M$ are gonna make only 64bit OS's then that will be a bit of a mistake, 64bit has been out for YEARS and hardly anyone has adopted it, so the majority of people will stay with the older stuff for longer/change OS altogether to save them spending hundreds getting a new computer
